What to watch on Monday, April 18.
Well, happy Tax Day, everyone. Either you're patting yourself on the back, rushing to meet a deadline, or getting mentally prepared for a jail term, but at least we're all in this together, am I right? Taxes and Mondays just go so well together! It's okay if your pocketbook is wounded today, let the television be your salve:
Tonight, one of television's least-essential yet most weirdly entertaining teen soaps returns from hiatus and the gang will get into a whole mess of trouble on a Mexican spring break vacation. In case you are interested in such things, Trevor Donovan will kiss Alan Ritchson. (Whatever you do, DO NOT Google image search either of these people, it's just asking for trouble!)
Tonight Thirteen officially steps foot back in the hospital just as Masters considers leaving it, plus the gang treats a 16-year-old girl who collapses before her around-the-world sailing trip gets... sailing? Tune in for better metaphors, hopefully.
How I Met Your Mother
John Lithgow returns as Barney's Dad, whom Barney will attempt to impress by asking his friends to lie so his life sounds more impressive. Oh jeez, that is just BEGGING for misunderstandings.
The countdown to the series finale continues as tonight the Destiny comes under attack from drones while recharging in a star. And in their escape, the crew members will accidentally stumble upon an abandoned city... of Cylons! Just kidding. I wish. As does Syfy.
Oh dear. Well, in tonight's episode, somebody named "Sean Combs" guest-stars as an undercover NYPD detective bent on revenge against a local crime lord. Here's hoping he'll craft a lackluster rap single by sampling the entirety of the Hawaii Five-0 theme song?
Law & Order: Los Angeles
When a city bookkeeper is found dead in a driver-less car following a high-speed chase, investigators suspect the victim's jealous boyfriend may be involved. Whoa, whoa, whoa, don't jump to conclusions, guys.
